For Anglers

Seward Halibut Tournament highlights this fishery, attracting early season visitors and anglers from throughout Alaska. Because the tournament takes place early in the season, anglers will find it is easier to reserve a seat on one of the many charter vessels. In addition, ramp space and trailer parking is plentiful for those anglers wanting to launch their own boats.

How it Works

Seward Halibut Tournament has a 6:00 am start time on June 1 and 8:00 pm end time on June 30th. You buy either a one-day ($10) or a 3-day ($25) tournament entry ticket (and don’t forget your fishing license!), then go fishing.

Turn in your fish by 8 pm each day to one of the three weigh-in stations:

  • J Dock Seafood Company
  • Captain Jack’s Seafood Locker
  • Seward Military Resort

Your catch will be weighed, recorded and entered into the tournament records. Winners need not be present to win.
